Iran producing heavy water derivatives: Nuclear chief

Eslami said on Tuesday that the AEO has been pursuing a “combination of laser and biotechnology” to work on heavy water derivatives for deuterated drugs.  

This cutting-edge approach has already commenced in laboratory settings and holds promising prospects for widespread implementation, he added.

Eslami pointed out that only a few advanced countries have mastered the production of heavy water derivatives.   

The achievement has now put Iran in a position to expand its efforts and move towards exporting heavy water derivatives to interested countries.
